    Great, Inexpensive, and Welcoming Place”

    Hospitality, Price, Food

    Although the name of the place says "hotel", I would classify Le Bamboo as an inexpensive B&B more than anything. Mauritius is full of top-notch hotels, costing hundreds of dollars per night. If that's not your thing, there aren't a ton of options to choose from, but Le Bamboo is one of them. You stay in one of the eight rooms above the family's house. Each has an en suite bathroom. Wifi (decent speeds), bike/kayak rental, and breakfast is all included. Location is great--only 250m from the waterfront, about 100m from downtown Mahebourg, and a short bike ride to Bleu Bay, where you can hang out on the beach or do some SCUBA diving/snorkeling. The family that runs it is super nice, so it's not out of the ordinary to receive an invitation to a party, cultural event, outing, or even just dinner with the family on a daily basis.

    Fantastic stay with a wonderful family”

    We stayed one night at le bamboo guest house and we truly enjoyed it. The room was clean, wifi and air conditioning were available. The owners made the difference! We got introduced to the local lifestyle and enjoyed a beautiful dinner in their living room! When you stay there, make sure you'll join them for dinner which is an absolutely delicious and local meal! They helped us with all our questions about Mauritius and how to get around. The husband also organizes tours by himself to show you the best of the island. Thank you very much and until next time! Miguel and Christian

    Cozy and homey”

    I stayed at Le Bamboo after having landed after the buses stopped running. It was so convenient, the guesthouse's location in Mahebourg. It was a quick taxi ride over, and I was greeted by the lovely couple who own the place. Le Bamboo truly felt like grandparents' home; it was cozy, comfortable, and sweet. The room I stayed in felt more like a hotel--very nice! The bathroom was great and the views over the river was nice. I had a bit of trouble connecting to the wifi from my room, but in the living room it is super fast and reliable. I would highly recommend staying here! The owners are so kind and friendly, and they are so knowledgeable about the island--they can give you directions anywhere.

    Gorgeous small familyowned hotel”

    The staff is friendly, nice bathrooms and near city centre and airport.

    We stay at Le Bamboo Guest house when we arrived to Mauritius and it was so nice that we decided to also spend our last days on our holiday there. It's a smaller fishing village and we felt most welcome here eventhough people in Mauritius is so friendly in general. It's not near beaches but Blue Bay is only 10 minutes cab drive from the hotel and cab is so cheap compared with cabs in Sweden. We are hoping to go back again because we love every minute of our stay.

    Pros: - Very helpful & friendly hosts. Can guide you as to where and how to go around mauritius. - The guesthouse is located in Mahebourg- great to experience a village feel and to see the daily local life of the Mauritian people. - It is a 7 minutes walk to the bus station (which takes you basically to anywhere around the island), supermarkets, and local restaurants - Close to Mahebourg's museum, monday's bazar market (which turned out to be not too impressive- very cheap quality & high prices- tourists beware), shops, and to the Blue Bay beach (which is a beautiful beach, just a 15 minutes bus ride away!) - Nice view to the Lion Mountain & river from the shared terrace. - Averagely calm. You can hear the birds, the wind, and the dogs barking nearby (Mauritius has many free/stray dogs). - Air Conditioning was working very well. Cons: - The terrace that you see with the mountain's view in the pictures is shared- this was not mentioned on Agoda as I made this booking!! - Not very clean, and there were ants in my room (on my bed, in the bathroom, on the floor,...). The room was cleaned once per week. - The bathroom is inside the bedroom, and too tiny. There is no hot water to shower. Just lukewarm, and you have to give it like 5-10 minutes to reach that warm, but not hot, temperature. - I was offered a room on the first floor (which is the most modern), but refused to take it as I did not feel comfortable to having to pass by the owner's apartment every time I needed to go to it. They gladly offered me another room on the second floor. - The rooms on the second floor are not modern and small. There is an artificial wall between some of them, so you will hear if someone else is talking in the room next to you. - The mattress was not very comfortable to sleep on. - Does not give you at all a vacation feel as the rooms are not spacious and modern (again). I wasn't looking for this at the beginning, as I am a budget traveler. But, when you go to mauritius & visit the am

    Very nice guesthous with lovable hosts”

    We very much enjoyed our stay at this guesthous as we felt completely home. Mala and Vishnu made our first days in Mauritius a great experience and we felt very welcome at their place. Rooms were simple, but nicely decorated and we even had a balcony. Mala is a great cook and we extremey enjoyed her home cooked dinner. The breakfast on the terrace was georgeous. We would definitely return to this guesthous in the future.

    Our stay at Bamboo was wonderful thanks to Vishnu and Mala, who manage the guesthouse. They went out of their way to make us feel welcome and at home. The location of the guesthouse is pretty good and fairly close to the bus station. Vishnu knows a lot about the area and was very helpful. The breakfast was plentiful and included omelettes, eggs or pancakes, depending on the day. Overall, great place to stay in Mahébourg.

    Le Bamboo is a pleasant, clean and hospitable establishment. However, I would not recommend it to older people who can't manage stairs. Also, there did not appear to be warm water in the showers and no soap was provided. the airport transfer costs are not included in the price, which was a surprise, but Vishnu took me to a nearby ATM. Vishnu and his wife were very warm, helpful and accommodating. I enjoyed my short stay as an overnight in-transit air traveler.

    Brilliant. The plane arrived at 8pm and the owner was there to pick us up. There was no restaurant so she arranged for us to have a take away which arrived within 30 minutes. Breakfast the next morning was great. The room was basic but large, comfortable and quiet with a great view across the river. For the price, I can't recommend the hotel enough and I would definately stay there again.

    Nice family, okay guesthouse”

    Meeting a family in Mauritius, timely airport pickup, and nice breakfast

    This guesthouse is a bit run down, removed from the center, and a little overpriced for what it is. The highlight is the kind family running it and the view of the river. There are more comfortable places in town that are closer to restaurants (important because the streets are dark and I didn't feel safe walking at night) in the same price range or cheaper. We also found that the owners were gone most of the daytime, which was a problem when we needed info or wanted to pay. But it's ok to base your first night here and then move on. Mahebourg doesn't have much to entertain anyone for more than a half day. We found cheaper and better accommodations in Flic n Flac and the location was better for both beaches and sightseeing.

    Above average”

    To be honest this place was a bit of a dive, we had booked budget accommodation but not realised it would be this bad. I would expect a higher standard at a backpackers. Whilst everything was superficially clean, the bathroom smelt and was created with a few bits of plywood separating it from the dining room, other rooms may have been better. But the biggest concern was the cats which freely roamed on the dining tables and kitchen surfaces. However it was conveniently placed to walk into Mahebourg, only a short journey from the airport and the owners were pleasant enough. I suspect that this is the standard of budget accommodation in the area and we should have paid more.
